Scott Walker will not make it to the quarterfinals. He enjoyed a little attention as a sort of dark horse/white hope for a bit. But what we have seen is that every time he opens his mouth, something comes out that make his backers want to weep a little. He’s not ready for big questions at all. Look at this hot mess he produced when asked about our relationship with Pakistan…I won’t make you watch:
In advance of his foreign policy address in South Carolina, Gov. Scott Walker was asked Friday morning about U.S.-Pakistan relations.
“Well, I think anywhere in the world we need to be better. We obviously have challenges all throughout the world,” Walker replied. “Heck, we even have challenges with a relationship with Israel, which is obviously one of our greatest allies out there. But we have ongoing challenges in Pakistan and Afghanistan, around the world. Again, it’s one of those where strength begets strength, confidence begets confidence.”
“I think you look both in terms of Pakistan and Afghanistan, you look at — we talk all the time about ISIS and Al Qaeda. We still have ongoing concerns about the Taliban and their ability to regain strength,” Walker said. “That has a relationship between both Pakistan and Afghanistan. We need to make sure that any form, any form of radical Islamic terrorism that’s targeted at us or allies is one that we stand firm on. And those are still lingering problems, even in that part of the world.”
One is reminded of this:
But he’s topped himself and I feel just the slightest bit sorry for him when he (in)articulated this:
The Wisconsin governor was asked whether he wanted to build a wall on the northern border, too, during an interview Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
Walker says law enforcement officials in New Hampshire brought up the topic of building a wall along the U.S.-Canadian border during a recent town hall meeting. He says they raised some legitimate concerns, so it’s a “legitimate issue for us to look at.”
The poor fucker either had to square the circle or come up with a decent reason why we don’t need a fence on the Canadian border without sounding like a racist asshole. “No Chuck, we’re just worried about the brown ones down south.” So he had to say that it interested him.
I’ll miss Scott, because he is almost as fun to mock as Ben Carson. Keep serving them up, cons, and we’ll break them.
